One final thought I had: should the Windows setup/zip files include

I was thinking about this for the Mac installer too. There's a lot of
copyrighted software, some of which has been slightly modified (by me)
to make it build in MacPorts. I'm careful to record all the
modifications I make in the file macports-1.7.0-universal.diff, so we
could provide complete corresponding source code if required to do so.
But it seems like we should include licenses for all the included
software. It doesn't have to be obtrusive, just a file in the .dmg that
the user can delete if he wants to. We could use the licenses from

However, the other free software Mac OS X applications I looked at
(Wireshark, Inkscape, Gimp) don't include all these licenses, if I
remember correctly.
